Abstract We report Sr, Nd, O, and H isotopic data and clay mineral abundances for turbidite sediments recovered in ODP Leg 116 cores from the Bengal Fan at 1°S. The samples studied cover the period between c. 17 Ma and the present. We also present new and compiled data on the isotopic compositions of potential source regions for the Bengal Fan sediments. ɛNd(0) values in the Bengal Fan sediments (all samples) define a narrow range about − 16.0. 87Sr/86Sr values (all samples) are also in a… Expand
